This isn’t what you want to hear if you’re a Rockies fan.
Tulowitzki’s injury was originally described as a left groin strain when he was placed on the disabled list at the end of May. It’s not clear if he actually has a sports hernia, but the Rockies are searching for answers after he suffered a setback in his very first minor league rehab game earlier this week.
Tulowitzki is scheduled to be examined Monday by Dr. Bill Meyers, who performed sports hernia surgery on Rangers’ outfielder Josh Hamilton last November. If a sports hernia is confirmed and surgery is required, Saunders estimates that he would likely need 4-6 weeks before resuming baseball activities.
Tulowitzki is hitting .287/.360/.486 with eight home runs, 27 RBI and an .846 OPS through 47 games this season.
